CES 2016: EVGA is one of the largest companies in the hardware industry and has a huge line-up spanned across various departments including graphics cards, PC cases, motherboards and more! During CES 2016, the company announced their first gaming laptop which sports an Intel Core i7 6820HK and supports manual overclocking. This is impressive given the form factor which measures under 1.05 inches with the lid closed. Furthermore, the unit opts for a stylish, aluminium single piece unibody design. On another note, the laptop incorporates a GTX 980M with full overclocking support, and up to 4 hours of battery life. Please note, this is the mobile chipset and not a desktop-grade GTX 980 which many rumours suggested the final model would be.

The laptop’s 4K IPS display features superb viewing angles and vivid colours. Although, I was initially confused by the omission of NVIDIA’s G-Sync refresh technology which produces such a smooth gaming experience. After speaking to EVGA, it seems a higher-end model is in production with a G-Sync display. Another highlight is the keyboard which feels comfortable and extremely well made.

EVGA decided to include 16GB 2666MHz DDR4 memory, up to 256GB M.2 SSD storage, and a 2TB mechanical disk drive. Here we can see the impressive cooling design and native USB 3.1 Type-C connector.

The BIOS can be mouse driven and displays key system diagnostics as well as the ability to tweak almost anything from system boot order to CPU strap. Overall, this is a very impressive package and I’m interested to see what the price point is going to be. When this information is revealed, we will update the article accordingly.
